- The Camp Hill Crocs recognise that many members are seeking greater convenience when looking to nominate their child for Club night events. We therefore offer three methods for nominating your child.
- These are outlined below in order of Club preference:
- Via our club website (www.camphillswim.club). Simply, click the appropriate Club night button and complete the form. This is now the Club’s preferred method of nominating your child.
- At the Pool - Entries for all events will open at 6.15pm and close at 6.30pm on each Friday night. All nominations must be made by the competitor personally or their parent/guardian. (Note - 'at the pool' nominations will cease after Club Night 7 on 18 November.
- Online nominations will open on or before 9.30pm each Friday and will close at 4.30pm the following Friday.
- Please note, if you subsequently decide not to swim that’s not a problem, all we ask is to be notified via email to [email protected] in advance of the meet commencing.
Parents and swimmers
If you have nominated online you do not need to come down to the nominations table to check your nomination. Parents please let your child know that they have been nominated online so they do not line up to double-check. This way we can be as efficient as possible and start the meet on time.
- Children who nominate to swim and then change their minds must advise the Race Marshall, the Announcer and the Nominator. Points will only be awarded for races competed in on the night. Cancelled swims do not count toward Championship qualifying.
- The records of the Nominating Committee will not be available to others except at the discretion of the Chief Nominator or by the discretion of the Chairperson.
- Swimmers times will be displayed but only as a courtesy to swimmers. The Chief Timekeeper may alter these times if a discrepancy occurs.
- Club captains will patrol the sides of the pool during 25 metre events. Competitors who are in difficulty in the water should support themselves on the lane ropes until help arrives.
- Movement along the sides and ends of the pool will not be allowed, except by Officials and Competitors in the charge of Officials. These areas are out of bounds and children playing in these areas will be asked to return to the stands.
- There must be absolute silence at the start of every race and when silence is called for.
- A Member competing for the first time in either Division of a particular stroke will swim a “time trial” over 25 metres for which points will be allotted within a specified time.
- Competitors must be able to complete at least one length of the pool unaided to be eligible for points.
- Swimmers must immediately go to the marshalling area when the race events are called. If a swimmer is not there when the Race Marshaller calls their name, the race will proceed and the child may miss the race. They will not earn any points for that particular race and the swim will not count toward Championship qualifying.
